A major reduction in the United Nation's budget up to $285 million was announced by U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley on December 24.

In 2015, the United States Agency for International Development put its total fiscal year spending in Nigeria at $355,728,911. "We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked", Haley said. This historic reduction in spending - in addition to many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable United Nations - is a big step in the right direction.

"You can be sure we'll continue to look at ways to increase the UN's efficiency while protecting our interests", she added.

The US now provides about 22 percent of the annual budget, or about $3.3 billion per year, according to PolitiFact.

Peters argued that the UN vote was an unimportant "tantrum" that the UN does all the time, no threats by the USA would make Muslim nations vote with the US and that the threat to cut funding was "ill-advised" and the USA won't follow through on it. "We don't care", the President said at the time.

He added, "I think we could have handled this particular case a little bit better".

It is the season of giving, and one Oklahoman gave a little bit more than expected this Christmas. The coin was apparently donated in a Red Kettle used at the Hubbards Lane Kroger location.

She also put up a list on Twitter, thanking countries who didn't defy the USA decision. No such steps should be allowed that would hamper peace and stability in the Middle East and deprive the people of Palestine of their rights."India has traditionally and consistently considered East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine and India's support to the UNGA resolution re-affirms that stand and commitment".

Trump didn't set any timetable for moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and neither did Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales. Erdoğan and other top Turkish officials have been at the global forefront opposing the US move. One defeated the many.

The majority vote in UNGA has proved that USA President Donald Trump's decision was unjust and discriminatory.

The result of the vote also riled Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who called the United Nations a "house of lies".

"If Algeria introduced a resolution declaring that the earth was flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions". Haley immediately responded by threatening to reduce America's United Nations funding. "Through all of these years, presidents representing the United States have refused to acknowledge Jerusalem as the Israeli capital".

The US decision has triggered a series of protests in the occupied Palestinian territories and around the world. "It is something that has to be done", Trump stated.
